It's two years today since the greatest two minutes in playoff history*

THE GAME THAT produced arguably the most dramatic two minutes in playoff history is two years old today.

With the aggregate score 2-2 at Vicarage Road, Anthony Knockaert had a penalty to win the tie for Leicester against Watford.

However, the spot-kick was missed, and Watford immediately went up the other end to score a 97th-minute winner courtesy of a Troy Deeney volley to send the Hornets into the final.

Will we ever see better drama in the playoffs again? It’s unlikely.
